Why, I’m so old I remember when one Member of Congress didn’t accuse other Members of the crime of bribery on the floor of the House in the absence of any evidence, and when making such a baseless accusation would have led to having words taken down, and perhaps to censure.
You have to sympathize with the Republicans. They were so sure that they had lied and obstructed their way to preventing health care reform, and now Intrade has reform at 85% likely to pass before the end of June. So they’re making false accusations and forging documents. God only knows how crazy they’re going to go after the thing passes.
